Have an Origami Party!
Hi! I'm Maddie. I had an origami party with my cousins and friend.
Barb brought all kinds of paper and taught us how to make boxes and stars and lots of other things.
I especially like making up my own origami, like this city.
In the photo below, we're showing just a few of the things we made.
Margaret's favorite was the star. She made a giant one from scrapbook paper. Angela made a bunch of flowers. Izzy likes the fortune teller.
Have an origami party! It's tons of fun!
Make a Space Alien!
by Rob Kunz, age 10
You can find great origami books in any library. I made this
alien from Planet Origami by
Steve Biddle and Megumi Biddle.
I used scrapbook paper that's silvery on one side.
Then I attached it to a "Cranky."
The Cranky is great for this alien in two ways:
It lets the alien
stand up, and you can wind it up to make him dance around.

The book Planet Origami also
has a galaxy made out of ten
pieces of paper and an x-wing spacecraft made out of one piece of paper.

We are lucky to have a singer-songwriter friend, Ann Elizabeth-Nagel,
who wrote, performed, and recorded the song
below especially for us!!! She has her own website: www.annelizabethnagel.com
You can sing along with Ann while folding!
You might like to try making a hat from
a piece of newspaper like our friend Ryan did at his birthday party.
Have fun folding and singing!
